Today’s Menu: Creamy Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a bowl of Cheerios. Had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea afterward.Outside it’s sort of windy, cloudy and a high of 44 degrees. Had another bout with Phantom Pains last night. They finally stopped around 4:00 this morning. So painful and it just drains me of any strength. So not a lot going on today. It’s a Comfort Food Sunday Dinner tonight, Creamy Tomato Soup w/ Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

 

 

 

 

Not feeling quite up to par so I wanted something light tonight so what better than Creamy Tomato Soup with a Grilled Cheese Sandwich. I heated up a can of Amy’s Organic Creamy Tomato Soup. My favorite Tomato Soup by far. I’ve been using for quite some time now. So creamy with a fantastic flavor and it’s 110 calories and 19 carbs. Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan and heat on medium, stirring often, until heated. And it’s ready to go and so good!

 

 

 

 

Then for my Grilled Cheese I’ll be using; Kraft Sliced Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Blue Bonnet Light Butter, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. I started by buttering the outside half of a slice of bread. Layered 2 slices of the Sharp Cheddar on top. Added my top half of the sliced bread, buttering the outside of the slice. I then got out a skillet, heated it up on medium heat and lightly coated it with a 1/2 pat of Butter. When the Butter was melted I added my sandwich. Grilled it on both sides until it was golden brown and the Cheese melted. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! https://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

Spud Soup
Soup can be a special meal that’s easy to make. This recipe is written especially for the young chef of the family. There is some slicing and dicing, so be sure there is adult supervision. Leftover soup makes a great Saturday lunch. Start the soup about 45 minutes before your meal.

Recipe Ingredients:
2 1/2 pounds Washington Yukon Gold or white potatoes
1 (49.5-ounce) can chicken broth
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme or oregano leaves
Salt and ground white or black pepper
1 (10-ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables
1 cup chopped cooked chicken, turkey or fish, or drained canned salmon or tuna

Cooking Directions:
1 – Scrub the potatoes with a vegetable brush in the sink under cold running water.
2 – Peel the potatoes with a vegetable peeler, although you can leave the peels on if you wish.
3 – Using a big sharp knife (and with permission or help) on a cutting board, cut the potatoes in half the long way. Put the halves cut side down on the cutting board and cut each half lengthwise into 4 pieces. Then cut the long slices cross¬wise to make small (about 1-inch) pieces.
4 – Get out a large saucepan or pot and put the potatoes in the pot.
5 – Open the can of chicken broth and pour into the pot.
6 – Add the celery, onion and thyme or oregano and sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.
7 – Put the pot on the burner and turn it to High. When the broth starts to boil, turn the heat down to Medium Low so the broth is just barely bubbling.
8 – Cover the pot and set the timer for 30 minutes.
9 – Using potholders, carefully remove the cover and poke one of the pieces of potato with a long handled fork or a knife to be sure the potatoes are tender. If the potatoes aren’t yet tender, cook another 5 minutes.
10 – Open the package of frozen vegetables and carefully add them to the pot. Add the chicken and cover on the pot.
11 – Set the timer so the soup will simmer for 10 more minutes.
12 – Ladle out a small amount of soup into a bowl and taste. Add more salt and pepper if you think it is necessary.
13 – Soup can be a special meal that’s easy to make. This recipe is written especially for the young chef of the family. There is some slicing and dicing so be sure there is adult supervision. Leftover soup makes a great Saturday lunch. Start the soup about 45 minutes before your meal.
